A MESSAGE FROM FR ANDY: MASSES ON ZOOM
“It has been suggested that while we are having zoom Masses that we might be able to join in with the Mass on line more fully. The idea is to have ready at Mass time some bread and wine in your own home and when it is time for Holy Communion, we can all share in the Eucharistic celebration in a much richer way. So when I, as the priest, consecrate the bread and wine, those on zoom having the bread and wine in their presence are able to all eat and drink and share the same Eucharistic meal together. Hopefully this will help us to feel that we are still a faith community and close to the Lord and close to one another.”
For those unable to partake as above and who wish to receive Spiritual Communion the Catholic Bishops Conference offers the following prayer for recitation:
Oh my Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things, and I passionately desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally come spiritually into my soul.
so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen

PATRICIA JOHNSON RIP: Please pray for the repose of the soul of Patricia Johnson who died on Wednesday morning. She was the mother of Toni Needham, who Fr Andy used to visit regularly.

PRAYER FOR THE YEAR OF ST JOSEPH:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil.
THE POPE’S INTENTIONS FOR APRIL: For Fundamental Rights
We pray for those who risk their lives while fighting for fundamental rights under dictatorships, authoritarian regimes and even in democracies in crisis.
PRAYER FOR SURVIVORS OF ABUSE: The Annual Day of Prayer for survivors of abuse is taking place on Tuesday 4th May at 7pm at St. Vincent’s Mission Hub, Solley Street, S1 4DE.
CAFOD: Thank you for your generous donations to CAFOD’s Family Fast Day during Lent and for taking part in our ‘Walks for Water’. In Lent 2018 we featured Marian and her son Svondo in Zimbabwe, we are pleased to let you know that the community vegetable garden that your donations helped provide is growing well and during the pandemic the family has survived on the vegetables. Your support has also helped to provide soap and handwashing stations in the garden and in family homes. This is just one of many long-term development projects that CAFOD has funded with the money from that Fast Day. Thank you for your steadfast support.
THY KINGDOM COME: A message from Greg Ryan, Director of Adult Formation, Doicese of Hallam. “You may have already heard about the UK churches initiative called "Thy Kingdom Come", praying for all aspects of spreading the Gospel, which takes place between Ascension and Pentecost. I know that some Hallam parishioners have taken part in previous years.
A number of resources which may be useful to individuals and parish groups have been made available by Teresa Carvalho. You can find downloads of the Catholic Resources via https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/resources-catholic-church and copies can be ordered via https://www.cpo.org.uk/static.aspx?key=product&q=113 (individual copies) or free larger orders https://www.cpo.org.uk/static.aspx?key=product&q=114 while stocks last. “
A suggestion is also made regarding identifying Parish Champions. If you are interested in being a "Parish Champion" for this initiative, Greg asks that you discuss this first with Fr Andy and then let him know so that people can be connected at the diocesan level.
FUND RAISING FOR KIVETON: Work on the church in KIveton continues. Please visit the Kiveton Project item on the website to find out more information on the restoration project for Blessed William Richardson, Kiveton and also to find how you can make a donation on line to help with this vital project. Please note that we will also accept cash or cheque donations marked clearly ‘BWR’ which can be passed to Fr Andy or any members of the Reflection Group. The target amount we need to achieve is £14,000. This is to meet the costs of roof repairs, essential electrical work, interior renovation, and redecoration. To comply with all health and safety requirements this work must be completed before the Diocese will allow the chapel to reopen. Some funding has already come from the Diocese and the parish is passionately committed to financially supporting the reopening of the chapel and the amount raised to date is £4100.
